Party On, Dudes And Dudettes

Well, it was bound to happen. The Tea Party movement has attracted the attention of the assholes, and they intend to bring the full brunt of their assholery on to the Tea Partiers two weeks hence.

This could get ugly. As someone who generally favors the Tea Party movement and has attended one such event, I'd like to offer my advice to the Tea Partiers some advice on how to deal with potential problems on April 15.

DO print out the plans and rants of these idiots and supply them to local police and press.

DO watch carefully for "infiltrators."

DO talk with others who will be attending and make plans for dealing with these assholes.

DO have plenty of cell phone cameras and other video recording devices recording everything you can.

DO NOT bring weapons to the rallies.

DO NOT openly confront them.

DO NOT be provoked by them.

The best ideas I've seen so far has been to identify and then isolate the assholes, in a non-confrontational way. One notion was to surround them with people loudly praying, singing, or chanting folks who will not let themselves be provoked. Were I able to get the day off from The Day Job, I would be ideal for this task -- I am fairly large, very difficult to provoke to physical violence, and I have a very loud and very bad singing voice. If anyone remembers the time Drew Carey sang "God Bless America," that would be my role model.

What must be remembered is that these assholes are vandals. They are destroyers. They lack the capability to create anything beyond chaos. They deserve absolutely no respect.

What does deserve respect is their ability to create that chaos. They are masters of disruption and provocation and disturbances.

My biggest fear is that these assholes love violence, and they're going up against people who have among them people who truly understand and have mastered real violence. Those people, generally, don't love violence, but are supremely competent in its application. People with military, police, or martial arts training are, generally speaking, very reluctant to engage in violence -- but once they do, it's never pretty.

On the other hand, the assholes who love violence are usually very bad at it when confronted with people with skills and no formal restraints on their behavior. They're used to clashing with the helpless, or the police who have legal restrictions on how they can use their skills. The Tea Partiers don't. Some assholes, if they push hard enough, are going to get their asses stomped into the dirt.

These assholes are going to the Tea Parties looking for trouble. And most people who go looking for trouble usually end up finding it.

And while the thought of these assholes getting their asses kicked warms my heart a little, the repercussions do trouble me. Because I know that, no matter the circumstances, it'll be spun to make the Tea Parties look bad.

Which is precisely what the assholes want.

James, there's no "crashing" a Tea Party gathering. One attends. There is no invitation list, no screening criteria, no doormen. You show up, you're in. Welcome.

But you really oughta do it. See what all the fuss is about. It's the most remarkable cross-section of America in a long time.

Including, yes, some nutjobs.

But American nonetheless.

Jay Tea:

Reminds me of a couple MoveOn things I went to a few years ago. At one of them, we went around the room for introductions, and everybody said something along the lines of "I'm so-and-so, and I have NEVER voted for a Republican!" Given my relative undercover nature, I had to restrain myself from saying, "I'm James, and I'll vote for a Republican if I damn well please, thank you very much."

Did I mention I'm contrary? And really really cranky at times?

The Gateway Pundit decided that the man who flew a plane into the IRS building was a Leftist because one of his Facebook friends was Facebook friends with PETA. That sort of thing is just par for the course over there. It's sad.

Hank:

Some thoughts..

No matter how well behaved the Tea Party protesters are, if just one does anything inappropriate, expect it to make the news.

Expect an infiltrator to shout the n word and claim to be a repub/tea partier.

What's really ironic to me is this.
The announcement is from Infoshop news.
They are concerned that "If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc"
Infoshop news calls itself "anarchic news. opinion and much more"
Gotta love it. Anarchic news is concerned about losing govt programs.

This is bizarre. Why would "anarchists" support the fascist, total-government, pro_Obama side over the traditional American, pro-liberty side? When did "anarchists" start to think "social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc." are good things?

These people aren't anarchists at all they are just typical leftist/Marxists. It's funny how many names they come up with for themselves that are an antithesis to that for which they really stand.

Adrain,

If you go the The Smoking Gun and read this wacko's screed you will see that it is anti-religion, anti-capitalist, anti-GWBush and closes with a criticism of capitalism compared to communism.

Since communists are generally referred to as being on the left, this guy fall on that end of the political spectrum. Sorry that it doesn't fit your narrative. You will note that the MSM swept this one away quickly because they couldn't paint a story of a right wing racist striking out at Obama. Instead it was just a disturbed lefty who represented people in need of psychiatric attention.

Fine with me. The assholes are going to find ways to make the Tea Parties look bad no matter what actually happens. If no real incidents occur, they'll simply make some up. We may as well be prepared for real incidents, and make sure that if any occur, it's the assholes who come off second best. They set the rules. They created a system where violence is an effective political argument. Maybe it's time they learned what that really means, first-hand.

There is no need for weapons. Leftists are only violent in a mob. Individually and in small, outnumbered groups they are just pantywaists. Stomp your foot at them and watch them scurry away like the rodents are.

"Anarchists" worried about "poor people losing government benefits"? F' shizzle? Some people will go to any length to describe themselves as something other than what they are - in that respect, they emulate Obama.

Or do it themselves and point fingers elsewhere. Take, for instance, the recent Tea Party gathering in Searchlight, Nevada. They threw eggs at the Tea Party Express bus and then tried to blame it on, of all people, Andrew Breitbart, when the cops showed up. He just happened to be there and got it all on video. Think we'll be hearing from our illustrious Dem Congress condemning these violent left-wingers? Naw. Of course not. They were largely union thugs and that's their base.

Bruce Henry:

The "violent anarchist" quoted in the link recommends 3 options:

1. Counter-protest. While he does call for these counter-protests to be "same time, same place," he doesn't mention confrontation, violence, or "infiltration," just counter-protest.
2. Passing out leaflets to try to get tea partiers to change their minds. Ooooh, scary!
3. Ignoring the Tea Parties, which he calls the "worst option."

What am I missing? the "infiltrating" part? The "violent" part? The "sabotaging" part? The "assholes" part?

Trick question. I'm missing ALL those parts, because the "anarchist" (that IS funny, an anarchist championing government programs!) IS NOT CALLING FOR THOSE THINGS!

Sounds to me like he's calling for like-minded individuals to get together and exercise their freedom of speech. You got a problem with that?

jim m:

Dictionary definition: "Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy."

as opposed to modern leftist anarchism: A lifestyle chosen by young people of limited mental capacity latching on to a historical movement that makes them sound cool and sophisticated while providing them an excuse to riot and loot and exempts them from having to make any contribution to society. Modern leftist anarchists frequently live in the homes of their parents or off of government subsidies while railing against the control of the state or the repressive nature of the traditional family.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

Have to disagree with the "do not bring weapons" meme. How many townhalls at which weapons were in clear sight, had any leftists start trouble? Remarkable how quiet a bunch of spineless, left wing talkers get when confronted by a conservative carrying a shotgun. Indeed, there WERE no "confrontations" at any of these events. The decades of intimidation directed by left wingers at actual Americans must come to an end. These people are working to destroy/take over our nation and constitutional rights. It ain't BEAN BAG when those are at stake!!! At least it had better not be. Time to find out just how "serious" the left is about its agenda when faced with armed Americans defending their country and liberty.

My take on it is similar to the 67 yr old guy that kicked that kids butt on the bus. IF they do some provoking, with all the video around the evidence of provocation will be perfect, and the asshole that gets owned will be needing an amberlamps.
